Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 5
Categories: Cookies / Desserts / Diabetic

1/2  c  Butter, softened
1    Egg
2  ts  Vanilla extract
1  c  Whole wheat flour
1  t  Baking powder
1/8  ts  Salt
1  c  Unsweetened coconut, flaked
1  c  Unsugared dates, chopped
4  ts  Orange peel, fresh grated
1  c  Pecans, finely ground

Cream the butter, egg and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture a little at a time, to the creamed mixture, beating after each addition. In a medium bowl, combine the coconut, dates, orange peel, and 1/2 cup of the pecans. Stir into the cookie mixture. Divide the dough in half and form into two logs, approximately 1.1/2 inches in diameter. Place the remaining 1/2 cup of pecans on a piece of waxed paper. Roll the logs in the nuts. Wrap each log in waxed paper and chill for 1 hour. To bake, slice the logs into 1/8 inch rounds and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned. Makes 5 dozen.
